Alert the media. It's a miracle!!!! I've been enjoying my 5-day weekend by stitching and watching videos (when not napping). And somehow I really go the completion bug -- but I had to struggle to get there.
You see I worked Wednesday night and part of Thursday on my Vierlanden. Please note the "massive" [wink wink, nudge nudge] progress:
Here's where I was when I last worked on it in.... gasp.... February
And here's how far I got in a day and a half on and off:
A close up of what I was actually working on--
Well then I got this itchy feeling. I just "had" to start something NEW. Yeah, like I need another WIP. I told myself I'd do something really small that I could finish so I got out some candidates....
And I fondled them warmly with that doofy little stash grin on my face.
Then a bit of guilt started speaking to my hind brain and I gathered up all the WIP/UFOs I could spot laying around and got this lovely family picture:
Thoroughly shamed and humbled. I put all the new projects away and went on a finishing tear.
At loooong last I finished the final dozen stitches on M Designs class project from the Cross Stitch Pals Myrtle Beach Fall Fling of 2006:
Sharon's Society RR sqaure 2 (August BC Snapper with color adjustments for the gulls and light house)
And for Simone's Christmas in July exchange I did this
It is on a white opalescent, but you can't really tell that. It does not get to be counted as part of the WIP Finishing Fest since it was a fresh start, but I kinda feel it gets a little credit since I've "wanted" to stitch it for a whiel and I needed to get an ornie ready for Simone's exchange.
I even made progress on somethings.....
Besides Vierlanden I did some work on my Quaker a la 6 Mains--
Sorry Margaret no work yet on the Fairy. lol
